The role of the forum is to bring together experts from different sectors, such as electricity, buildings and environment, as well as all stakeholders concerned by energy efficiency, energy management and renewables (i.e. NGOs, consumers associations, EC reps, professional federations) to discuss and exchange information on national and/or sectorial initiatives, best practices and innovative technologies and to provide guidance to introduce energy management in standardization work.
The EiiF brings in expertise and know-how in the field of industrial insulation which is a Best Available Technique for energy efficiency.
The latest EiiF/Ecofys study “Climate Protection with Rapid Payback” identifies a major energy and CO2 savings potential of industrial insulation. It can help European industry to reduce its total fuel consumption by 620 PJ and emissions by 49 million tons of CO2. This total annual energy savings potential of 620 PJ is equivalent to the energy consumption of 10 million households; the annual CO2 reductions potential of 49 Mt is equivalent to the CO2 emissions of 18 million cars.
